Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Do bartenders need to be licensed?

Certain counties, cities and states may require licensing. Check your local government’s regulations before starting your search.

In many cases, you might want to choose a bartender who has a license and/or certification. If you’re considering hiring a bartender for an upcoming event or a special occasional, check their online profiles to find out what credentials they have. If you can’t find the information online, don’t hesitate to ask them directly when requesting to receive free estimates.

How do I find a good bartender?

Put some time on your calendar to research and compare top-rated bartenders near you online. Start by looking at their ratings and services. For example, some bartending services will provide a waitstaff, glassware, ice, coolers, food and more.

Next, look at their photos of past events and read the customer reviews. Find feedback on the bartenders’ services. Did they offer fair pricing? Did they show up on time to set up? Did they bring all of the appropriate drinks, cups, supplies and decorations? Did they interact politely with the party guests and provide a pleasant overall experience? And did they do the agreed-upon cleanup afterward?

Narrow down your top choices, and start contacting the bartenders. Ask for cost estimates for your event, and tell them how many people will be attending, what type of event it is and what services you require. You should also ask them questions about their experience.

Bartenders may need a license in your state, county or city to work at a private party. Make sure they’re properly certified before you hire anyone.

How much does it cost to hire a bartender for a private party?

Hiring a bartender for a private party typically costs between $270 and $390 in total. On an hourly basis, expect to pay at least $40 to $60 per hour, as well as a flat fee. How much you’ll pay, however, depends on the time of year or day, the size of the party and other factors. Get in touch with a few bartenders near you and request a free estimate — it’s the only way to get an accurate idea of how much private bartending services will cost you.

How much should you tip wedding bartenders?

Sometimes, a gratuity is included in your final bill. If not, consider tipping your wedding bartenders between 10% and 15%. However, this is not a set-in-stone rule. You can always tip more, perhaps 20%-25%, for great service.

What do bartenders cost for a wedding?

It costs roughly between $270 and $390 to hire a bartender. However, if you need a wedding bartender, you should request cost estimates from bartenders near you. Depending on the drinks you plan to serve, the number of guests and other factors, your total cost will vary.

Alexis is an excellent bartender and helped make my birthday party a phenomenal one! The bar setup/presentation was as good as those seen in craft cocktail bars. The drinks were inventive, balanced and delicious! His personality, and interaction with the guests, helped make the event one to remember!

Barbara was a delight to work with! She bartended our wedding reception and was extremely professional and affordable. She brings her whole bar set up so you don't have to worry about a thing. She even picked up ice for us too. Barbara staffed our party with a second bartender who was equally pleasant and professional. She was able to meet a few weeks before hand to go over details of the party too. She even reached out to me the day before offering to be of any help and assistance in party set up. I would highly recommend Barbara for your party and would use her again myself.

Hiring A&D’s Bartending was the best decision I could have made for my party! They were able to handle a huge crowd of thirsty friends & family - and they were extremely personable & friendly at the event - and leading up to it. They were a fairly last minute hire as I realized I needed a day of coordinator/people to set up, breakdown & clean (on top of the stellar bartending) bc I couldn’t do it all - and they came through 500%. They were super responsive & detailed & did everything they could to help make the party successful. Just check out the great bar set up - all them! They went above & beyond and I will absolutely use them again for any future events. Thank you Deborah & Antuan!!
